"Mr. Secretary, if the nursing home owners are arrested for negligent homicide, why shouldn't you also be arrested for negligent homicide?" McKinney asked.

Excuse me?

If she's got evidence that Secretary Chertoff should be charged, why hasn't she turned this over to the appropriate DA's office? Of course she's grandstanding. It's political face time. That said...

First off the nursing home owners were contracted by the patients and their families to care for them. No one else. And those patients are not the responsibility of the state or nation. FEMA's job is primarily assiting the states in disaster management and recovery, right?

This kind of garbage does nothing to help correct what IS wrong with FEMA. How about an intelligent question like why firefighters were forced to take sexual harrassment classes before heading to New Orleans to act as PR flunkies for FEMA?

Intelligence doesn't seem to be McKinney's (or most other politician's) shtick.

Not to mention the pols seem to be covering up their lack of oversight on what N.O. and La. did with the federal money that congress gave them over the past decade.
